              Good breakfast

              Tired decor staff not welcoming.

              An excellent welcome. The room was clean, comfortable and welcoming.a good base to explore essex and quick easy link to London.

            • Family with children
              9.2

              The location of the hotel was good for Colchester Zoo, and close to bus stops or a train station into the centre of Colchester so easy to get about even without a car. The hotel itself was clean, breakfast was yummy and the staff were all very helpful.

            • Family with children
              5.8

              I thought that although the rooms were clean, they require to be 'updated'. The hotel's room menu was pretty limited and I found that the gym/pool/changing rooms were a little dirty. I think the overall comments were good, however overall the building and furnishings need to brought up to a higher standard.

            • Family with children
              9.0

              The hotel has created a nice relaxed atmosphere. The bedrooms were very nice and comfortable. Exceptional customer service was displayed by a lady called Wendy in the restaurant, and the rest of the team were also very good.

            • Family with children
              8.0

              Newlly refurbished room, good restaurant food.

              Specifically pre-requested easy access room for one guest who was registered disabled. Check in were unaware of this initially and assigned a room some distance away. Problem was efficiency resolved by the receptionist, however. Nice walk-in shower, but it flooded the bathroom floor!

            • Older travelers
              7.0

              The food - particularly the breakfasts

              Lack of privacy in the rooms during the day - once the curtains were opened houses opposite could see right into the room

              have stayed here before and would stasy again. great rooms and leisure centre. good location.

            • Family with children
              10.0

              The reservation itself was not logged at the hotel, they had no record of my booking luckily as I carry a copy with me they honoured the boking and the orice but had no record of it.

            • Older travelers
              7.4

              The overall finish and comfort of the rooms and the whole hotel in general was of a high standard. The staff were very helpful, especially the usually unrecognised chamber maids and bar staff who went out of their way to be helpful and courteous.

              Because there is no lift it would have been nice, and under the circumstances of being a 4 star rated hotel, to have been asked if we would like porterage of our baggage to the rooms by the reception staff.This was clearly lacking as it was noticed that this service was not offered to any arriving guest that we observed in the reception throughout our stay.It has to be said that the charge for breakfast was overly expensive when it is obviously known to the hotel that a superb deal can be had at Toby Inn for less than half the price just 3 minute drive down the road.

            • Group of friends
              6.6

              Staff friendly and helpful. Food good and reasonably priced. Room comfortable.

              Jacuzzi wasn't working and spa facilities rather limited

            • Older travelers
              8.2

              We had gone to the hotel for a birthday party which they organised quite well. There was however a lot of confusion over what we should pay for breakfast. It ranged from 10 to 14 pounds , needless to say we paid the £10.

            • Group of friends
              10.0

              The staff were well trined and customer care excellent.

              7.0

              Convenient location. Reception staff helpful.

              Couldn't find our booking !! Was offered the 'last' room - although a suite - no aircon and room was far too warm. I booked an exec aircon so was disappointed. We didn't need / want the suite facility as aircon was paramount to us.Booking was found once we were in the room.

              excellent value for our requirements
